James Carville: Dems Need to Learn to Blame Bush More!

James Carville, mastermind of Bill Clinton's 1992 campaign, has some sage advice for Democrats in Washington following the victory of Scott Brown: Blame Bush!

Never mind that Mr. Bush isn't running for office. Also never mind that our economy was humming right along even after the most devastating foreign attack on American soil and two simultaneous wars against radical Islam.  Dems never let a little thing like reality get in the way of anything. Carville proves his allergic reaction to facts in his article:
It was Mr Bush’s economic team that worshipped at the Church of Deregulation and was asleep at the wheel as banks and insurance companies became too big to fail.
Oh really, Jimmy? Gateway Pundit begs to differ:

Of course, it should be noted that President Bush publicly called for the reform of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac 17 times in 2008 alone before Congress acted. Democrats, on the other hand, blocked reform numerous times.
But wait, there's more. Carville continues his fuzzy thinking and abstract logic:

While Republicans decided that obstructionism would be their winning tool of choice, Democrats were left trying to explain what happened to the thriving America they once knew. Democrats were blamed for the recession and 10 per cent unemployment, while Mr Bush raised millions for his presidential library in Texas.

Hmmmm. Let me see if I've got this straight. Dems took over Congress in January of 2007 and we've been in a recession ever since then. And the Dems manage to somehow, magically, get the blame? Somehow? And explain to the class just how this is related in any way to George Bush raising money for his library.
Jimmy, you're not taking your medications like you know you should, now are you? Your cognitive dissonance is showing again. Take this red pill and call us in the morning. And leave that poor chicken alone.
